At first, I disregarded his comments about homosexuality, but when he speaks against a person God given ethnicity, I believe that' against the Scriptures.Although he is a Christian, he's extremely naive to society, and the real world because he lives in the isolation of his billionaire family, he hasn't observed the plight of not only African Americans but other minorities as well.
Last December, the billionaire hillbilly for pay duck caller claimed homosexuality is a sin, and blacks had it fine under the Jim Crow era. You see people such as Duck become Conservative heroes for speaking against homosexuality. Is there a homosexuality agenda, possibly. But, there's also a mind your own damn business lack of movement. Although, indeed sinful, homosexuality is not the only abhorrent sin. But, Conservatives seem to believe their righteous because they rag on homosexuals.
"“Do you think it’s a coincidence,” Robertson asked, “that all of these debilitating — literally that can cause death — diseases follow that kind of conduct?” He was responding to Perkins’ question specifically about the controversy from last year.
“God says, ‘One woman, one man,’ and everyone says, ‘Oh, that’s old hat, that’s that old Bible stuff,’” he said. “But I’m thinking, well let’s see now. A clean guy — a disease-free guy and a disease-free woman — they marry and they keep their sex between the two of them. They’re not going to get chlamydia, and gonorrhea, and syphilis, and AIDS. It’s safe.”
Robertson reasons, “Either it’s the wildest coincidence ever that horrible diseases follow immoral conduct, or, it’s God saying, ‘There’s a penalty for that kind of conduct.’ I’m leaning towards there’s a penalty for it.”" (1).
It amazes me when Conservatives only rag on homosexuals, but they disregard other sins, such as hatred, racial prejudice, envy, pride, etc.,. By the way, Jesus was NOT white. So, when you waive the Bible around remember Jesus was NOT white. That's the European spin on "art" the pictures commonly seen in the United States are not an accurate depiction of the Lord Jesus Christ. But, that's for another time. One has to wonder why is it they are so worried homosexuality, are they fighting feelings and desires they have in their life? Are the people most vocal against homosexuality - homosexuals themselves?
Not to mention the fact, rubber ducky is out of touch with th
ose poor people he rags on as if they're not worthy of God's love. Point being, he claims blacks were better as slaves, stripped of their humanity and self-dignity and their self-worth. Because we all know blacks loved slavery, they wanted it to stay that way, right Duck? Of course, not. Most of the time, especially in today's society Conservatives, now more than ever, need to understand the history of folks ethnicity and the sacredness for each of them. That is to say God created all men, and today the gift of salvation is offered to all men; regardless of their race, past, gender...etc., That's a little off the subject, however it is relevant because it shows the mindset of people such as Duck. A consistent out of touch with reality is what's causing any chance Conservatives think they have of winning the White House in 2016, unachievable. Although in Conservative circles they may have high hopes, but that's all they'll have.
